THIS extraordinary footage documents life at Cuddle Workshop, London’s foremost cuddle club. Anna Nathan Shekory, 37, and Tom Fortes Mayer, 40, run the Cuddle Workshop in upmarket West Hampstead. Anna set up the class after experiencing an epiphany about the therapeutic power of cuddling during a hug with a group of strangers at a festival in 2010. The class includes a section in which attendees can have their “cuddle wishes” fulfilled, and ends with a spot of “freestyle cuddling” in which attendees engage in a mass cuddle.
